We are staying here in GA for Thanksgiving. I am down to the last 2 months of my pregnancy and no more travel! So, we are having dinner with our friends that live near by (and moved here from SYR). We actually had Thanksgiving with all of them 2 years ago. It was Parker's first thanksgiving -and he was only 3 months old! Amazing how much he has grown! Here was Parker the last time we stayed home for Thanksgiving, and now look at him!
I am so glad that we are not travelling this week! This past Monday, I came down with the really bad 24 hour stomach bug. I was SO ill-Mike ended up "working" from home to assist me with Parker. Parker actually saw mommy hugging the toilet and "puking" and he kept saying "Your funny-Mommy" and I was saying; "No, Mommy doesn't feel good-Go get daddy!"
We had to call my OB and she put me on Zofran so I could stop puking. I am so glad that it worked. If I couldn't stop then I was going to have to go into Labor and Delivery for IV's! And I was so thankful that Mike realized and just knew that I needed home. Once again-drama in the pregnancy...is it a girl?
Now that the stomach bug is behind me I have been able to get ready for Thanksgiving Dinner. Still have a little appetite, but I am sure Thanksgiving Morning I will have it back. I LOVE to cook-but being that I am 32 weeks pregnant, I can't do it all. So I ordered a Turkey and a few sides from Kroger! That is a huge blessing. All I have to do is the mashed potatoes, an appetizer and I MUST not forget my favorite-Dessert. I just made Turtle Cheesecake and can't wait to eat it tomorrow (or is Sweet Pea that wants it more then me?) Don't worry-I made this a lighter recipe, and used fat free Caramel. But then again Cheesecake really is not one of those "healthy desserts" but for the Holidays I just couldn't resist! Our friends are bringing some sides as well and we are looking forward to the great time.
We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.
I am so thankful to God for the Family, friends and health he has given to me. And an extra special blessing this Thansgiving is the anticipation and wonder of meeting our Sweet Pea in about 7 weeks! Can't wait to see if Sweet Pea is a He/She! Between the holidays and the birth of Sweet Pea we have SO much to do.
I am off to go hunt down my table cloth so I can set the table!
